    We've enjoyed coming here for many years even though the displays remained mostly the same. Now it's better than ever. The houses really give a feel of what life was like at that time. The museum has ...  more »

    This is a nice stop. Make sure you go through the museum in the main building which is south of the white picket fence. Unlike Fort Bowie, this fort has 3 of the original buildings. AZ State Parks has done a wonderful job of placing antiques in the building and the uniforms displayed in the main museum are wonderful. This is your chance to see a nice display about the Buffalo Soldiers and the Apache Scouts who contributed so much to the AZ way of life. The Camp Verde jail is just to the west of this so take the time to walk over to it. There is also an Archeology building to the west of the jail on the corner. Another great place to stop and see historical items

    Great historic fort with original buildings. There is an historian available for a short talk. Young kids are allowed to dress in historic clothing and even touch historic firearms. There are several weekend events held throughout the year. Those include some historic baseball games. And reenactments.

    A rather small piece of history here. The facilities are clean, and the displays are maintained well. The museum is a treasure chest of information about the old fort and mission, and the park ranger was very informative.

    The state as done a good job keeping up the place. Fun little stop, but small ( takes just a few minutes to check out park).
